Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

This is 'Angel Obscura' which is Dark Angel in Spanish so I'm told. I sculpted the wing in flexible modeling paste. Then I painted the whole wing in metallic black and hilighted in metallic purple and blue.
Then I drilled holes for the chain to hang and beaded in 15/0 seed beads from Fire Mountain Gems.
I'm not going to share what I used for the base at this time. Sorry, I usually share everything, but not this time.
This piece is about 2 feet wide and about 1 1/2 feet hi.
57 year old work in progress. Mixed media is my current favorite form of art. Married with 2 grown kids.
I collect things, broken things, whole things, shiny things, rusty things, things that other people would toss away.
I want to know how to do everything!
